Specializations are study plans that provide conditions for completion, such as compulsory subjects.
The specialization provides specific knowledge to work with programmable structures extending into parallel and distributed systems, computer networks and cryptography. Teaching emphasizes the balance of courses providing the necessary theoretical basis and courses focusing on practical skills that are involved in the design, implementation, analysis, testing and operation of embedded systems. An integral part of the study is also working on a project with a small team and oriented towards experimental and prototype solutions to interesting problems associated with the solution of practical problems arising from research and development activities of the faculty.
Graduate in the specialization "Hardware systems" will be prepared to design solutions of practical problems with the use of computer hardware, to creatively adjust hardware systems and to deploy them.
The specialization focuses on areas of security in computer systems and networks, cryptography and its applications. The aim is to prepare such a graduate who will be able to work in a variety of roles critical to ensure security of ICTs – specific profiling (e.g., toward cryptography, technological aspects or security management) beyond a common basis of field of study is left to the choice of the student.
Graduates of the specialization "Information security" will be able to work in organizations developing or providing systems respecting security requirements, but also in advanced management and operations of such systems.
Networks and Communication
Networks and Communication specialization is not available in English.
The specialization focuses on acquiring advanced knowledge of architectures, operation principles, and principles of operation of computer networks. The field is conceived to satisfy both those interested in practically oriented advanced information and knowledge in the field of computer networks and their applications, as well as those interested in deeper acquaintance with the theoretical fundaments of the field and the study of computer networks as a special case of distributed systems. In addition to knowledge of computer networks, the student acquires knowledge of security, principles of working with multimedia data, basic knowledge of parallel systems and necessary theoretical background.
Graduate on the specialization "Networks and communications" will be able to work as an architect of large networks, manage network operations and related projects, or to work as an expert in applications or security of computer networks.
The specialization will lead the graduate to knowledge and skills necessary in all stages of development and changes in extensive software systems, especially information systems. Emphasis is set on knowledge necessary at the design and development of systems with on deployed modern software technologies.
Graduate in the specialization "Software systems" will be ready to take various roles in the IT departments taking part in the development and operations of information systems and in the use of IT for support of organizations.
